Bandai 1/72 X-wing

Well I wanted to do this fun little project a while ago, I actually started this model in early 2020, but I got demotivated so I didn’t finish last year, nevertheless, a few weeks ago I found the box, and decided to finally finish it, it looks pretty cool and I really had fun doing it, and that’s what matters. I am sorry for those star wars purists 😉

Obviously, it is a fictional scheme based on some references I’ve found, I decided to use the black stand that comes with the box but deleted it on photoshop.

I hope you like this “PXW-47 Starbolt” hehehe

  1. I had given some thought to building one similar to this with USAF or ANG decals. Looks very nice,

  2. Love how the wing insignia splits.

  3. That’s just freaking awesome! Love a fun nonsensical build that really looks great. I second Johns mention @krukowskijohn on loving how the wing insignia splits! Fun times!

  4. Hello chaps
    Honestly, I’m not fond of “parallel universes what if fantasies”, but this one is, in my humble opinion, out of the flock.

  10. I like it!!!! A fun build.

  11. I’ve always wanted to build an X-Wing with WWII warbird markings. This is very cool indeed. Liked!

  12. Rene’, sometimes you’ve got to just let loose and have fun with creativity, and you’ve done that here. Very clever and looks really good.
    I’ve been thinking of doing one super high performance US Navy aircraft that were sent back in time to destroy the German fleet during the battle of Jutland in WW I. You know the Avengers of flight 19, that were found in a barn in England in 1926 !

  13. You know – I’m not a Sci-Fi builder, but THAT is a scheme I can get behind! Well done! Looks like it’s been tooling around in heavy atmospheres with all that weathering…
